Professional practices Karen Chalmers endorses's Professional Guidelines.

I'm living my dream of being a freelance translator working from Spanish to English. This is what I have wanted to do with my life since childhood and I think it shows! I'm known for my lightning fast response times, eye for detail and reliability. I take great pride in providing each and every client with a friendly yet efficient personal service and this service doesn't end when I send you your translation: if there is anything you would like to change, I will work with you until your text is just how you want it.

I enjoy collaborating to find the perfect translation for my clients and will happily work to tight deadlines.

I have a real passion for languages and have achieved my lifelong goal of working as a freelance translator with my two favourites: Spanish (Spain and Latin America) and English (my mother tongue). My work has gravitated in the direction of arts/culture, journalism, marketing/market research, tourism and sustainable development, a topic I am very passionate about. I successfully completed two renewable energy courses, one in English and the other in Spanish so that I can make sure my knowledge of the relevant terminology is completely up to date. I find all of these subjects hugely enjoyable, which I believe shows in my work.

Through my extensive studies I have gained great familiarity with many writing styles and I'm well-versed in various referencing systems.

I truly love my work and I think that this is reflected in the service I provide.
